Case: Sturgill v. Lucas, et al.
Venue: Second District Court of Appeal
Lissette Gonzalez of CSK’s Miami office and Mark Tinker of CSK’s Tampa office obtained an affirmance of a final summary judgment entered in favor of the defendant/appellee in a negligence action arising from a roadway accident. The defendant/appellee successfully argued that the plaintiff/appellant could not establish her negligence claim as there was no evidence that the defendant/appellee was subject to or breached any legal duty of care, thus proceeding to a trial in the matter would have been futile. The Second District Court of Appeal affirmed the decision of the trial court in all respects.
